Cape Verde Time (CVT) is a time zone that is used on the islands of Cape Verde, which are located off the northwest coast of Africa. CVT is one hour ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and is abbreviated as UTC+01:00.
Cape Verde Time is used by the Republic of Cape Verde, a small island nation composed of ten islands and five islets. The islands of Cape Verde are located in the Atlantic Ocean and are known for their warm climate, sandy beaches, and diverse culture.
Cape Verde Time is not used by any other country. The time zone that is used in the rest of Africa is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), which is based on the longitude of the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England. GMT is the same as UTC and is abbreviated as UTC+00:00.
