Finland

Finland uses Eastern European Time EET and Eastern European Summer Time EEST. EET is UTC +0200 and EEST is +0300. Finland's latitude and longitude is 64° 00' N and 26° 00' E. Therefore a two hours offset between EET and UTC is not surprising. Looking at Finland’s the high latitude it’s clear the country has a big need for daylight savings time. Especially in the North of the country where the days get very short during the winter.
