Sunrise and sunset time for Bucharest

The sunrise and sunset times for Bucharest vary depending on the season. During summer, the sunrise generally takes place around 5:30am and the sunset at 8:30pm. In winter, however, the sunrise is later in the day at 7:30am and the sunset takes place earlier at 5:00pm. This means that during summer days are significantly longer than during winter days; in fact, during summer days are typically around 15 hours long while winter days are typically only around 10 hours long. As such, solar energy is more readily available during longer days when compared to shorter ones. The length of a day can have significant effects on many aspects of life in Bucharest, so it is important to keep track of when sunrise and sunset will occur for each season.
