There are also small streams that we can jump over, as well as rivers that we can cross the opposite shore only by boats. There are also streams that carry the water from the water source to a larger river, as well as rivers that span thousands of kilometers. Each of them forms the basis of the ecological structure of the region in which they are located. They offer their water to plants and animals and carry fertile soil to their deltas. Dams built on them are used both for agricultural irrigation and for generating electricity. The fish and other aquatic creatures they host are a source of livelihood for people in the region and maintain the balance of nature. It is really difficult to list all the effects of a river, with their visible or invisible effects, they shape our entire life directly and indirectly.

We all know the name of the two types of rivers. The first is the river or rivers that bring life to the region we live in. The second is the largest and longest rivers in the world because they are the most famous ones in the realm of the river. From rivers on which cruise ships roam to rivers that give life to the world's largest rain forests, we know them very closely, even though we haven't been able to see them. And frankly, we wonder how these rivers have flowed for millions of years. When we increase the amount of water they carry in a second with the time multiplier, we see that there is an astonishing flow.

It is not surprising that the longest rivers in the world are also among the largest rivers. At this point, the unique balance and order of nature emerge once again. These rivers spread across different continents around the world and created their own ecosystems. When it comes to the longest rivers in the world, we see that they give life to many towns, cities, and countries. We have listed the longest rivers in the world. They have been doing their duties for millions of years, all we have to do is not to harm them and ensure that they continue their existence in a healthy way.
