Sandomierz Governorate (Russian: Сандомирская губерния; Polish: Gubernia sandomierska) was an administrative unit (governorate) of the Congress Poland.

History[edit]

It was created in 1837 from the Sandomierz Voivodeship, and had the same borders and capital (Radom) as the voivodeship. Its lower levels of administration were also mostly unchanged, although renamed from obwóds to powiats. Reform of 1844 merged the governorate with Kielce Governorate, creating a new entity, the Radom Governorate.
