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 greater region Dobrogea. There, the sun rises at 7:13 am and sets at 4:24 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Dudestii Vechi (Banat) at 16:58.

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. Bucharest lies on the 44th 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 Romania, this period averages 38 minutes. In June, it's about 42 minutes in Bucharest, while in December it's 34 minutes.
