Although the details of the story are not clear, it is known that the Turkish Empire occupied Vienna, Austria in 1683. Although several Turkish attempts were made to take the city by force, however, they failed.

They decided to use underground tunnels in their fight. The bakers of Vienna were working in the basement stores of Vienna and heard the sound of digging. They alerted the army to stop the siege.

The bakers were praised for their diligence and helped defeat the Turks. They baked their bread in the shape a crescent moon to celebrate. This was the symbol of the Ottoman Empire. It was customary to have morning coffee with crescent-shaped pastries after the Turks were defeated.

Although most people think the croissant is French, it actually originated in Austria. The recipe was later modified by puff pastry.
