Where does the sun rise in Slovakia?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Slovakia is Sobrance in the region of Košický. There, the sun rises at 7:15 am and sets at 4:07 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Malacky (Bratislavský) at 4:28 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. Bratislava lies on the 48th 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 Slovakia this period averages 39 minutes. In June, it's about 42 minutes in Bratislava, while in December it's 36 minutes.
