Balatonaliga, the former holiday resort of the communist party survived World War II with relatively little damage. In the coming years the resort became the centre of youth and worker holidays.
In 1947, the youth movement "Miénk az Ország" made Aliga the centre of communist youth holidays. During summer they housed about 1 800 children in the arbitrarily expropriated private villas. In 1948, well-known politicians like Rákosi, Gero, Rajk, Imre Nagy also spent their summer vacation in the expropriated private villas of the resort.
In the early'50s along with the construction of the port of Aliga, some large-scale earthworks started. In 1952 Mátyás Rákosi declaired the entire resort of Aliga with the help of the State Protection Authority to strictly guarded, enclosed area.
After the freedom fights of Hungary in 1956, in summer of 1957 the holiday resort was re-opened to the public. Aliga was also connected to the public ship transport system of the lake.
The following year however, János Kádár, Secretary General of the communist party ordered the area to be closed again. The area was split into a government holiday resort (part closer to Akarattya), and into a holiday resort of the communist party (part closer to Világos).
The parks, trails, hotels and the new buildings were maintained with great care. The previously expropriated villas however, were destroyed unfortunately in the 70s and 80s.
János Kádár spent his summer vacation in Aliga for decades, in a relatively simple villa that was built for him. His hobby was playing chess, but he also liked fishing at Lake Balaton. Because of its location, Aliga was easily accessible and could be perfectly guarded. Party leaders of socialist countries like Castro, Brezhnev, Honecker etc. were also hosted in Aliga, in greatest secrecy of course. Usually they came for a holiday, but important political negotiations were also not rare in Aliga.
The MSZMP holiday resort (Balatonaliga - Fürdőtelep) remained even after 1989 state property. In December 2006, the recreation center was privatized.
