Madrid, Paris, Rome, Berlin, and Stockholm are all in the same time zone. It is GMT+1 in the winter and GMT+2 in the summer. So, if you are in Spain
, you have daylight savings time all year, then you have double daylight savings time in the summer. How do you feel about sunset at 10:30 pm local time?
