Where does the sun rise in Moldova?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Moldova is Pervomaisc in the region of Central Moldova. There, the sun rises at 7:36 am and sets at 4:44 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Briceni (North Moldova) at 4:50 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. Chisinau lies on the 47th 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 Moldova this period averages 38 minutes. In June, it's about 40 minutes in Chisinau, while in December it's 35 minutes.
