Central European Summer Time

Central European Summer Time (CEST), sometime referred also as Central European Daylight Time (CEDT), is the standard clock time observed during the period of summer daylight-saving in those European countries which observe Central European Time (UTC+1) during the other part of the year. It corresponds to UTC+2, which makes it the same as Central Africa Time, South African Standard Time and Kaliningrad Time in Russia.[1]


Other names which have been applied to Central European Summer Time are Middle European Summer Time (MEST)[2], Central European Daylight Saving Time (CEDT)[3], and Bravo Time (after the second letter of the NATO phonetic alphabet)[4]. It is also in practice called CET, for example in invitations to events during the summer.
