Where does the sun rise in Lithuania?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Lithuania is Visaginas in the region of Utenos. There, the sun rises at 7:17 am and sets at 6:50 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Nida at 7:11 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. Vilnius lies on the 55th 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 Lithuania this period averages 82 minutes. In June, it's about 120 minutes in Vilnius, while in December it's 45 minutes.
