National road 1 (Polish: Droga krajowa nr 1) is a route in the Polish national road network. The highway connects the northern and southern regions of Poland, running from Gdańsk to Cieszyn at the Czech border, traversing the Pomeranian, Kuyavian-Pomeranian, Łódź and Silesian voivodeships. National road 1 is a component of European highway E75. From Piotrków Trybunalski to Katowice, it is part of the Gierkówka route, and it has four bridges over the Vistula river.

Currently[when?], construction efforts for the A1 motorway run parallel to or along older sections of the highway. Upon the A1 motorway's completion, the current road 1 will be largely superseded.
