List of adoption dates of the Gregorian calendar per country


This is a list of adoption dates of the Gregorian calendar per country. For explanation, see the article about the Gregorian calendar.

If not stated otherwise, it concearns the transition from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar by the civil authorities. In religious sources it could be, that the Julian calendar was used for a longer period of time, in particular on protestant and eastern orthodox side. The historic area doesn't have to match the present-day area or country. The column 'present country' only provides a logic search entry.
