Neo-Baroque style church was build on the highest place of the town. It is rectangular single nave building. Two towers erected on the main facade, between a wavy section. Upper parts of the four stage towers are octagonal with baroque style domes, globular superstructures and openwork crosses, the openings in the facade and towers are of different sizes and shapes. There are three altars in the church, characterized by orderly arrangement. They are decorated with artificial marble columns, broken and richly ornamented architraves and their superstructures. Above the main altar a semicircular window is cut, where the historic St. Virgin Mary painting "Madonna with Child" with inscribed Latin text is placed. Inscription in the silver table tells that the picture was brought here from Vilnius and hung here to remind its miraculous rescue from a huge fire.
