Where does the sun rise in Slovenia?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Slovenia is Lendava in the region of Pomurska. There, the sun rises at 7:30 am and sets at 4:37 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Dobrovo (Goriška) at 4:51 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. Ljubljana lies on the 46th 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 Slovenia this period averages 37 minutes. In June, it's about 39 minutes in Ljubljana, while in December it's 35 minutes.
