Augustów Governorate (Polish: Gubernia augustowska, Lithuanian: Augustavo gubernija, Russian: ) was an administrative unit (governorate) of the Congress Poland.

It was created in 1837 from the Augustów Voivodship, and had the same borders and capital (Suwa?ki) as the voivodship. In 1867 territories of the Augustów Governorate and the P?ock Governorate were divided into a smaller P?ock Governorate, Suwa?ki Governorate (consisting mostly of the Augustów Governorate territories) and recreated ?om?a Governorate.

Administrative divisions

It was divided into 7 powiats:

  • Biebrza?sk County (seat in Szczuczyn)
  • D?browski County (seat in Lipsk, later in Augustów)
  • Kalvarija County
  • ?om?a County
  • Marijampol? County
  • Tykoci? County
  • Wigierski-Sejny County (seat in Sejny)

After 1918, the southern one-third of the governorate was included in Poland, the rest falling to Lithuania.
