Other cities in the top 10 dark places are Reykjavik (Iceland), Luxembourg, Ljubljana (Slovenia), Wellington (New Zealand), Vilnius (Lithuania), Prague (Czech Republic), Vienna (Austria) and Taipei (Taiwan).
Saudi Arabia is actually a huge desert, so it gets an enormous amount of sun, and Riyadh is located in that desert.
