Where does the sun rise in Czechia?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Czechia is Písek in the region of . There, the sun rises at 6:47 am and sets at 6:19 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Hranice (Karlovarský) at 6:45 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. Prague lies on the 50th degree of northern latitude and is therefore very far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Czechia this period averages 47 minutes. In June, it's about 54 minutes in Prague, while in December it's 39 minutes.
