Where does the sun rise in Estonia?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Estonia is Narva in the region of Ida-Virumaa. There, the sun rises at 7:17 am and sets at 6:34 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Kuressaare (Saare) at 6:58 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. Tallinn lies on the 59th 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 Estonia this period averages 65 minutes. In June, it's about 77 minutes in Tallinn, while in December it's 54 minutes.
