Lithuania will switch to daylight saving time on Sunday 25 March by setting clocks forward one hour at 3 am local time.
Daylight savings will end on Sunday 28 October at 4 am by setting clocks back an hour.
There was some talk that daylight savings would no longer be implemented in Lithuania, with some suggestion that the increased 'night' hours led to an increase in crime and traffic accidents, but there was no research to back this up.
Surprisingly the implementation of daylight savings is a European Union directive and will remain in place until at least 2016.
With summer days already very long, Lithuania has less need for the energy saving benefits of daylight savings.
