Where does the sun rise in Tunisia?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Tunisia is Bin Qirdan in the region of Madanin. There, the sun rises at 6:02 am and sets at 6:12 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Nefta (Tawzar) at 6:25 pm.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Tunis lies on the 37th degree of northern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Tunisia this period averages 32 minutes. In June, it's about 34 minutes in Tunis, while in December it's 30 minutes.
