Relja is just north-east of the peninsula. Notice, as you walk northwards, some older builings. They are called Talijanke (“the Italian girls”) because they were built during the times the Italians ruled Zadar. Though somewhat unremarkable from the outside, they are architecturally important with twisting stairwells and pleasant courtyards. Relja now has a shiny new indoor shopping centre full of boutiques and cafes.
