Ukraine has big climate variance for its territory, probably the greatest in Europe after Russia. From Southern Coast of Crimea with its Mediterranean climate to cities like Kiev and Kharkiv with humid continental climate with cold winters.

When I think of luckiest climates I think of that which have both cold climates and warm climates even thought for myself I don't like snow.

Number one has to be the US. The only thing lacking is abundance of "very warm winter" climates but there's still California. Besides the States I can think of 4 other posiblities.

Chile - Has a huge range of climates due to the length of it. But yet seems lacking something.... For example no humid subtropical???

New Zealand - Also for a small country has a great range of climates. But there's a lack of snow most places, while the north just doesn't seem as "tropical" as it should be. Sun hours are a bit low to.

Italy - Great for snowy winters in the alps and the warmth of the south in the Medditterean. But like Chile it seems to be lacking something thought hard to say what maybe subtropical?

Japan - Great for snowy winters in the north and certain areas of the central parts. The south is subtropical and the islands to the south of the main islands are even more tropical like. The only negatives are the surprisely high amount of cloudiness and the lack of any medditterean climates which seemed to be one of the most desirable climates.

Brazil? Well if you like high humidity and rain.

Australia has the perfect weather, but I like California (namely Santa Monica - seems very temperate and mild without any extremes).

The USA has a enviably diverse range of climates, it has most types of weather that I'd want to experience.

For my tastes I would say Australia but it doesnt have large cities in its tropical climates, that's why I would prefer to live in South Florida.
And the US has the most diversity of climate in the world I suppose.

I'd say Harare, Zimbabwe has a great climate:

The US has definitely not all the climates of the World, as some tried to tell us in the previous posts! A climate similar to Western Europe (UK, Germany) is not found there. Even Seattle has more sunshine and drier summers...

The US has also not many climate variations since Midwest and Northeast have continental climates, getting colder and drier inland... Few cities have even a solid oceanic climate (PNW is dry in summer)...
I think Europe, as a continent, has much more variety (Mediterranean, continental, oceanic, subtropical, Subarctic...), and they are very close to each other (2 hrs flight or even less could mean a drastic change in climate, thinking of Istanbul and Munich for instance)

USA, no question. It has the whole gamut of climate ranges, from tropical to desert to polar to alpine to coastal.

But with large swaths that are all the same version of continental.

Personally to me "lucky" would be the country with the most stable winter temps. And in that regard the US fails miserably.

Pity it's such a dangerous place. I would love to live there.
