So Tallinn & Estonia will be moving from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) back to so-called Summer Time also known as Daylight Saving Time (DST or GMT+1). An American politician and inventor Benjamin Franklin first came up with the idea of saving daylight while in Paris in 1784. Back then it was all about saving candles.
Tallinn has quite a few public clocks like any other cities. Our oldest public clock dates back to 1684 and is hanging on the wall f the Holy Spirit Church. Read about the other tic-tocks from below ⏰⏱🕰⏳
