Sucany is located 9 kilometres northeast from the town of   Martin. It is among one of the earlier areas in the continent that were originally colonised by Slav tribes. The earliest documented reference was written in the year of 1258. Till nearly half of the 14th century, Sucany belonged to part of castle Sklabina´s property, after which became   small centre for the estate around   the local castle. The castle was demolished at the order of King Matej in the year of 1488.
By the middle of the 14th century, Sucany became a serfhood municipality with administrational and jurisdictional autonomy, with the right to arrange the public markets and to collect revenue and tools from merchants.
