In December the Saratov Region changed the clock zone. It is one hour added to Moscow time in the Region since that date. The decision was taken after a long discussion. As a result, about 70 percent of the population agreed.

      According to the community members, the transition to the new time zone will extend the daylight and will positively influence the wellbeing and health of inhabitants of the Saratov Region.

      Saratov Region is a part of the Volga Federal District. It is situated in the South-East of the European part of Russia. Administrative capital of the Region is the city of Saratov. Saratov Region shares boarders with such regions as Volgograd Region on the south, Voronezh Region and Tambov Region on the west, with Penza Region, Samara Region, Ulyanovsk Region and Orenburg Region on the north as well. On the East Saratov Region shares a frontier with Kazakhstan Republic. The region is rather cosmopolite. Among the nations dominate the Russians, Kazakhs, Ukrainians and Tartars.

      Saratov Region is situated on the south-east of the European Russia, in the northern part of the Lower Volga. The river of Volga divides the territory of a region in two parts, left bank area and right bank area. The waters of Volga are one of the main natural resources of the Region.
