Did you know that the origin of croissants is Austria, not France?

A feast for the eyes and the mouth. Without dispute, the croissant is one of the most well-known and widely consumed pastries. As an indispensable part of the many breakfasts around the world, surprisingly its history is not as known as its taste. And more surprisingly, it traces its origins back to 17th century Austria, not France as many of you could assume.
