Belostok Oblast administrative divisions - 1807-42
In the 19th century, some of the oblasts were administrative divisions which had a status roughly equal to that of the guberniyas; i.e., they existed independently from the guberniyas, not as their parts as it used to be the case in the 18th century.

In 1842 the number of districts was reduced to three when Drohiczy? District was merged into Bielsk District.
