Kamchatka Krai ( _ru. Камча́тский край) is a federal subject of Russia. It is a krai formed July 1, 2007 as a result of the merger [ [http://en.rian.ru/russia/20070701/68118900.html RIA Novosti - Russia - Two Far Eastern regions merge to form Kamchatka Territory ] ] of Kamchatka Oblast and Koryak Autonomous Okrug, after a referendum held on the issue on October 23, 2005. The administrative centre is Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The okrug retains the status of an administrative division of the krai under the name of Koryak Okrug.

The krai will exist in the transitional state until the the krai's legislative body (Legislative Assembly of Kamchatka Krai) is formed—or until December 31, 2008, whichever comes first. During the transitional period, the Council of People's Deputies of the former oblast and the Duma of the okrug would legislate in the krai.

The merger united the Russian Federation's constituent parts on the Kamchatka Peninsula. The krai is a part of the country's Far Eastern Federal District.
