Nowadays, Greenwich Mean Time, abbreviated as GMT, is a time zone designation rather than a time standard. Time difference between time zones can be expressed by the GMT or UTC offset. In the UTC standard, there is a commitment to keep within 0.9 seconds of GMT, so that every few years a leap second is applied to UTC. In the age of the internet, these small clock calibrations are conveniently distributed via NTP.
UTC/GMT+2 is 2 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
European Union (EU) daylight saving rules have been in effect for more than twenty years. The +2 offset is shared by countries on three continents: Europe, Africa and Asia. Find out more about countries, their time zone, offsets, and current times using our geographical selector.
