Today in the world there are about 200 countries with a population of about 8 billion people. Therefore, to make an objective rating of the countries with the best climate is very difficult. Almost every region has specific weather conditions. Some like warm sunny weather all year round. Others prefer cool fresh air and love the rain. And others can't live without the crisp of snow and winter sports.

However, most people tend to believe that countries with mild winters and warm summers have the most favorable climate to live in. That is, where there are virtually no excessive fluctuations in temperature throughout the year, low humidity and minimal risk of natural disasters, including earthquakes, tsunamis, floods and hurricanes. Based on numerous surveys of tourists and immigrants from around the world, let's highlight the countries with the best climate to live in the world.


1. Greece
2. Costa Rica
3. Spain

In the ranking of countries with the most comfortable climate Greece leads by a wide margin. The state and numerous islands are located in the southern part of Europe, and are washed by the Mediterranean, Aegean, Ionian and several other less important seas. A temperate Mediterranean climate with dry hot summers and mild wet winters prevails over most of the territory.
