Helsinki Cathedral is a most famous landmark of Helsinki, so at least you should see it. There are other nice buildings near it. If you're intrested in arts you could either see modern art at Kiasma or more traditional at Finnish national gallery Ateneum.

In Lapland there could be snow on October but in Helsinki most likely not. Weather can be quite cold, even below zero but if you're lucky it's still bit warmer (5-10 degrees) In lapland it's most likely 5-10 degrees less than in Helsinki.
