Short description: „Zepce's Transversal" is the mountain- touristic circular pedestrian trail that goes through most of the municipality Zepce's territory. It covers most of the natural, historical and cultural sights of Zepce area, and almost all facilities of recreational and sport purposes. The goal is to enable a safe tour of Zepce area to as many interested people, by walking and hiking as the most substantial form of recreational sport, and introduce them the historic and natural tourist attractions of this territory, and the recreational sports facilities.

The tour of the Transversal is usually planned to be done by hiking, but it can also be done with mountain bikes or in winter by cross- country skies. Transversal can be toured individually or in small groups every day, through safe and well-marked trails. For organized groups over 20 persons, a mountain guide and arrangement of suitable accommodation, and transport of heavier equipment, and supplies of food and drink can be provided.

Once a year (in June), the mountaineering society „VIS“ are organizing a group tour of the Transversal with all the necessary ancillary services (guides, mountain rescue service, medical aid, transport of heavier equipment and supplies).

The Transversal can be visited by using the corresponding transverse log, which contains a map, plan of the tour and description of all parts of the route, which can be purchased in offices of "VIS" Zepce. The Transversal trail is marked by hiking markings (red circle outside, white inside), and the appropriate signposts at intersections with other hiking trails.

The total length of the Transversal is about 100 km, and the trail is set at an altitude from 220 m to 964 m.  The Transversal passes through the mountainous region, through the gentle hills, centuries-old forests, pastures and meadows and along streams and river beds. Smaller part of the route goes along asphalt and gravel roads and through residential areas. The trail does not track the extreme climbs, cuts and canyons, and rocky areas. All along the route the traveler can be supplied with abundant sources of ordinary and mineral water, and food and beverages in rural shops.

All persons that complete the Transversal, and as a proof for it have a completed transversal log, will receive a suitable badge of the Transversal in the offices of the mountaineering society „VIS“ Zepce.

The arrangement is suitable for the following target groups of visitors: People who are physically and mentally healthy and able to undertake some heavier efforts and have some knowledge, experience and equipment to hike through the mountain, regardless of age. For children and adolescents it is recommended to visit the Transversal accompanied by parents or other adults.

This family restaurant has been operating for six years, and during this period is profiled as a restaurant with the widest selection of wine and fish specialties in the region. Although located near the town with stunning views of Žepče, the restaurant represents a green oasis that offers every guest the luxury of relaxing and enjoying the superb local cuisine.

WELL DONE - The restaurant supplies over 6o percent of the vegetables needed for cooking from its own domestic economy „Pervan“, grown ecologically. In addition to vegetables, family business produces various kinds of spirits - the traditional local spirits that are on the wine list but also offered for sale as souvenirs. Since the restaurant - wine shop in everyday business has a lot of empty glass wine bottles, this waste disposal problem is solved in a creative way. These bottles are re-used in the production of domestic spirits and liqueurs, illustrated as souvenirs, and used in a glass fence, making a decorative and distinctive detail of the exterior of  the restaurant, and also reminding all the guests of the necessity of recycling and the fact that the potential waste can be a nice environmental decoration.

AROUND THE TABLE - Dioniz has gained the status of a wine shop, as one of only a few such restaurants in BiH, due to offer of more than 60 types of wine from the region. Beside wine, the restaurant is especially proud to offer over 10 different types of domestic spirits and liqueurs prepared from a series of local fruit trees: apples, plums, pears, cherries... The restaurant is known for its wide range of dishes prepared of marine and freshwater fish, as well as local and national dishes, and the possibility of preparing traditional dishes: dishes under sač and pork roasts to order. Another example of the concern about the environment and guests is Children's Menu and Vegetarian Menu, which are available to guests.

SURROUNDING - The restaurant – wine shop is located on the outskirts of Žepče on the way to Zavidovići, near the bus station. In just five minutes walk guests can reach the center of Žepče of which they can learn even more by visiting religious and cultural monuments, current events, and other interesting facilities, and proximity of the bus station allows visitors a quick access to other towns in the region: Zenica, Zavidovići, Maglaj...

Dioniz has been organizing Rakijada, tourism - gastronomic event for hundreds of its loyal guests, for several years. This event is organized in autumn and allows guests to take part in the production of fruit brandy in the traditional way as the local manufacturers did from time immemorial, and  taste the local specialties: meat and vegetables made under the sač.
