The Sun Never Sets In These 5 Places In The World

Our days begin with beautiful sunlight and end with blissful moonlight. It is how it works, 12 hours of night and 12 hours of day. But not everywhere in the world. Many countries in the world have about 70 days as the sun does not go down till then. Yes you read that right. There are some countries in the northwestern part of the Earth where the sun does not set every single day. Here are 5 such countries

1. Sweden

Sweden is renowned for having many lakes and forests. Northern Europe’s largest nation, it is well-known for the Northern Lights. The sun shines strongly from the beginning of May to the end of August. The sun sets about midnight and rises around 4 AM in Sweden at this time. The constant time of sunshine in this country can be up to 6 months.

2. Barrow, Alaska

Alaska is known for glacial scenery, sparkling snow-covered mountains, and glaciers. This city in Alaska is simply blessed with divine beauty. The sun does not set at all here from late May to late July. After this the sun does not set from the beginning of November for 30 days.
