Where does the sun rise in Bosnia and Herzegovina?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Bosnia and Herzegovina is Rudo in the canton of . There, the sun rises at 5:13 am and sets at 8:04 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Sturlic at 8:22 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. Sarajevo lies on the 44th 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 Bosnia and Herzegovina this period averages 35 minutes. In June, it's about 36 minutes in Sarajevo, while in December it's 33 minutes.
