Expressway R1 ( _cs. Rychlostní silnice R1) also Prague Ring ( _cs. Pražský okruh) is an expressway in the Czech Republic. It is an outer ring of Prague. Its first segment was opened in the 1980s.

As of 2006 16 km are in operation. A 6,08 km long segment from Lahovice to Slivenec is under construction. Other segments are under preparation, while the most disputed one is the north-west segment (with two alternative routes existing: north and south).
