Until 2006, Turkey seemed to start/end DST at 1:00 standard time, as 
reported earlier.

Starting 2007 though, it seems that they are adopting EU's 1:00 UTC 
start/end time, according to the following page (2007-03-07):


"Turkey is to shift to daylight savings time on the last Sunday in 
March, with clocks being moved forward one hour at 3:00 am on March 25. 
Summer time will end on October 28, with clocks being put back one hour 
at 4.00 am."

The old 1:00s was used last time in October 2006 as the following news 
article suggest:

"The day-light saving implementation will end at 2.00 a.m. on October 
29th, 2006 as the clocks will be set back by one hour..."
