National road 19 (Polish: Droga krajowa nr 19) is part of the Polish national road network. The highway connects the north-eastern and southern regions of Poland, running from Kuźnica at the Belarus border to Barwinek at the Slovak border, traversing through the Podlaskie, Masovian, Lublin and Podkarpackie voivodeships. National road 19 is part of European highway E371.

Until the 1980s way between Lublin and Rzeszów was marking the national road No. 26, and between Lublin and Radzyń Podlaski national road No. 24. The remaining length of the route did not have the status of national road. After renumbering of roads, route 19 near Białystok led in the direction of Augustów, Suwałki, to the border in Budzisko (today's Route 8 E67). Later changed course from Białystok towards Sokółka to the border in Kuźnica (former road No. 18).
