Where does the sun rise in Montenegro?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Montenegro is Rožaje in the region of East. There, the sun rises at 5:09 am and sets at 8:02 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Igalo at 8:08 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. Podgorica lies on the 42nd 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 Montenegro this period averages 33 minutes. In June, it's about 35 minutes in Podgorica, while in December it's 32 minutes.
