Time Zone Map of Europe | HD Time Zone Map

The planet earth is broken up into regions we call time zones. Time Zones basically follow the cycle of the sun as the earth spins and different parts of the world face the sun. Humans need to sleep and we generally do this activity at night time. In this era of transcontinental corporations and business enterprises, time zones are more important than ever.

The world timezone map begins and ends at Greenwich, a suburb of London in the UK. The HD Time Zone Map of Europe we have above is centered in Greenwich and to the left and right are the farthest points away from this line and are -11 hours away from Coordinated Universal Time. Each timezone is one hour in length so there are 24 separate time zones as there are twenty-four hours in a day. 

There are 4 time zones in Europe. The UK, Portugal, Ireland, and Iceland are grouped together in the 0 UTC. Norway, Sweden, Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Italy Germany, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Switzerland Poland, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Albania, and Macedonia are all grouped together in +1 UTC.
