Where does the sun rise in Hungary?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Hungary is Csenger in the region of Northern Great Plain. There, the sun rises at 6:51 am and sets at 3:42 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Szentgotthárd (Western Transdanubia) at 16:11.

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, causing sunset to last for a different duration. Budapest lies on the 47th degree of northern latitude and is therefore very far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator lasts only about 20 minutes, in Hungary, this period averages 42 minutes. In June, it's about 47 minutes in Budapest, while in December it's 37 minutes.
