Some must-see things and places:

Senate Square & the Dome Church
Suomenlinna Fortress
Uspenskiy Cathedral
Temppeliaukion kirkko (Church of the Rock)
Olympic Stadium

If you like heavy music, go to some metalhead bar (Kantis, Hevimesta, The Rock Bar...), they're plenty. :)

When I was there, my favourite place was the Market and the harbour. Taking the ferry to Soumenlinna islands is also a good choice to spend your time.
