Due to its natural beauty , water resources and natural diversity, Ivanec was already inhabited in the distant past, as evidenced by numerous excavations in the surrounding area, which tell stories much older than those from the 12th century that talk about the Hospitallers - the Knights of St. Ivan of Jerusalem, which they then settled. It is in one of their documents from 1396, first mentioned village of St. Ivan - today's Ivanec.
