Post-office complex consists of three structures. In the center there is a two-storeyed post office building with the garrets. There are two building on the both sides of the post office built. One of them is used as a warehouse and a stable and the other one – for the carriages to keep. The buildings are built out of red clicker bricks with the ceramic details covered with the green glaze. They are decorated with the plinths, cornices, pediments and tops of the fence piles. Three styles are reflected in the ensemble but Neo-gothic style is the strongest: high openwork and stepped pediments with sharp-cornered bays and niches, three and four leaved decorative elements. A gorgeous street-door is decorated with carvings, metal grids and other details. All the buildings are located symmetrically (influenced by Classicism) and surrounded by a metal fence with the brick columns.
