Kaliningrad Time is the time zone three hours ahead of UTC (UTC+03:00) and 1 hour behind Moscow Time (MSK−1). It is used in Kaliningrad Oblast.

Until 2011, Kaliningrad Time was identical to Eastern European Time (UTC+02:00; UTC+03:00 with daylight saving time). However, on 27 March 2011, Russia moved to the so-called "year-round daylight saving time", so that clocks would remain on what had been the summer time all year round, making Kaliningrad time permanently set to UTC+3, peculiarly placing its time ahead of countries to its east during winter.

It is identical to Further-eastern European Time, which is also used in Belarus.
