Why does Hungary have a mathematics tradition? Upon internet search of "famous Mathematicians", so many hungarians were listed. What is in that culture to influence the excellence in Mathematics among hungarians? Why does that country seem to succeed? Where does the motivation in that society come from? Is this "hungarian mathematics tradition" just an illusion?

They have been hungry for exploits since the time of their forefather, Attila the Hun.
Sorry, I dunno. I DO know, however, that Russia, and several of the other Communist countries had, and have, exceptionally many proficient mathematicians.
