The submarine was designed by Design Bureau "Podvodni vlastovka" (DBPVL). The design is single hulled and allows the commanding officer to see the entire submarine from the bow to stern while standing at the periscope. Four 110-cell batteries are located forward and aft of the command center in the lower deck and make up about 25% of the boat's displacement. Two main ballast tanks with forward and aft trim tanks allow the boat to dive. They are powered by four Skoda diesels and four Mega Urquell generators. The Skoda-Pilsener electric motor is attached directly to a five-bladed propeller.

Type Vysocina submarines are armed with 6 bow 533 mm torpedo tubes and 18 torpedoes, and 9-cell vertical launch system for guided missiles.
