Balhae was an early feudal medieval state of Eastern Asia, which developed its industry, agriculture, animal husbandry, and had its own cultural traditions and art. People of Balhae maintained political, economic and cultural contacts with the southern Chinese Tang Dynasty, as well as Korea and Japan.
The province was formed in 1945 after the capture of Japanese controlled Manchukuo. In 1949, the province was incorporated into the Songjiang Province and in 1954 the whole area was included into the Heilongjiang Province.
