The Church of the Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary was built in 1756-1782 as a Neoclassical building with late Baroque decorations after a project by architect Leopold Niederecker. The interior is designed as a large hall with inner piers and nine altars along the perimeter. The high altar, dated 1784, with a painting of the Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary by painter J. Q. Jahn, was made by sculptors Rauch and Knitschel from Trutnov. The church has a unique organ built in 1910 with three thousand pipes. The church spire is 64 m tall with the typical onion-shaped top.
