Time Zone History of Sweden
In 1879, the solar time 3 degrees west of the Observatory of Stockholm was defined as the national standard time. It was 1 hour and 14 seconds ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), then the world's time standard.
To get in line with the global standard, Sweden turned its clocks back by 14 seconds in 1900. The local time was now exactly 1 hour ahead of GMT. The country has been using the same time zone ever since.
