When a date is stored in database as 2013-06-12 17:30:00+00:00. It shows up as 19:30 when using:

TIME_ZONE = 'Europe/Stockholm'

In summertime, as it is now, Stockholm is +1 so I was expecting it showed up as 18:30.

I hope I don't have misunderstand how timezones work. But I have put up a question on StackOverflow without receiving any answers. I came to the conclusion that this might be a problem with the Django.

Stockholm is in CEST, which means UTC+2 in summertime.

>>> import datetime
>>> import pytz
>>> dt = datetime.datetime(2013, 6, 12, 17, 30, 0, 0, pytz.utc)
>>> stockholm = pytz.timezone('Europe/Stockholm')
>>> stockholm.normalize(dt.astimezone(stockholm))
datetime.datetime(2013, 6, 12, 19, 30, tzinfo=<DstTzInfo 'Europe/Stockholm' CEST+2:00:00 DST>)
