The interior of the temple is covered with a wooden ceiling. In the profiled portal leading from the chancel to the sacristy, there are late gothic oak doors with fittings with floral motifs. There is also a stone erection plaque with the Doliwa shield and an inscription referring to the temple foundation and a late-gothic painting from the beginning of the 16th century.
