Šútovo lies in the skirts of National Park Malá Fatra 20 km northeastwards to Martin (town). The area of Šútovo had been sporadically settled since the era AD. A fortified settlement has been found by archeologists originating from the 9th and then 11th and 12th century. Another small settlement starts here in the middle of the 13th century, which is noticed in writing as a village in 1403 for the first time. Šútovo originally belonged to castle Suča of the Baláš family in the 13th century. Name of the village is according to documents derived from "goats without horns" - (šuty).
