Three-aisle hall church with a long presbytery and 2 towers in the front. The north tower (63 m), now a lookout tower, was built in the early 14th century and the south one, a bell tower, was added a century later. The bell "Zuzana", the second largest bell in Moravia, was installed in 1563. Several gravestones from an abolished cemetery are set in the exterior walls of the church.

The southern (bell) tower was built 100  years later. The bell known as "Susan", the second largest beel in Moravia, was hung in 1563.
