Channel adjustments of the Danube River near Bratislava are reconstructed from historical river maps for 1712-1886, the period preceding mid-course channelization. The study reach comprised an anastomosing-meandering planform, characteristic of the upper area of a large alluvial fan. The key mechanisms of channel change were avulsions through channel switching into chute channels, meander development through progression and cutoffs, and abandonment of secondary channels. The gravel-bed Danube River was characterized by rapide rates of lateral erosion and extensive areas of point bars and gravel bars
