The Ozurget Uyezd (Russian: Озургетский уезд; Georgian: ოზურგეთის მაზრა, Ozurgetis mazra) was an uyezd (county) of the Kutais Governorate of the Caucasus Viceroyalty of the Russian Empire. It roughly corresponds to modern-day Guria. It was created in 1846 and lasted until the formation of the Democratic Republic of Georgia in 1918, when the historic name Guria was restored.
