Sunrise and sunset in Romania

Sunrise today: 7:37 h
Sunset today: 17:18 h
(Times for Bucharest)

The times of sunrise and sunset in Romania are significantly influenced by the country's very northern position in the hemisphere. Relatively high in the north the days in summer are long and short in winter. With up to approximately 15:40 hours the longest days happen in June. On the other hand, the longest and darkest nights are in winter (in the southern hemisphere it is the other way around). In December a night in Bucharest lasts almost 16 hours.

In these days the sun in Bucharest rises at 7:37. The early sunset at 17:18 makes the day currently a bit too short.

Where does the sun rise in Romania?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Romania is Sulina in the region of Dobrogea. There, the sun rises at 7:25 am and sets at 5:02 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Dudestii Vechi (Banat) at 5:37 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. Bucharest lies on the 44th 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 Romania this period averages 35 minutes. In June, it's about 37 minutes in Bucharest, while in December it's 33 minutes.
